- saw the light and shade -

(If you can guess where I got this blog title from, you're my hero.)



Hi guys, it's been a while!
Sorry for not really keeping my blog updated, I've actually missed posting here.
I promise to do better again :)


I've been writing about the photo shooting I had just recently on my Facebook and Twitter and today I want to share the results with you!


I have known Julie for a couple of years and she's a very dear friend. She's also one of the most beautiful people I know, hands down. I've kept seeing gorgeous photos of her, and a couple of months ago at a Steampunk event in Hamburg, I met the photographer behind a lot of her great pictures - Oliver Blang! I'm a big fan of Oliver's work as a photographer, he has an amazing gallery full of beautiful, creative and unique pictures!


When Oliver and Julie asked me if I'd be interested in joining both of them for a photo shooting, of course I said yes! I'm usually behind the camera and not in front of it, but I couldn't let a chance like this pass without giving it a try.


I was actually pretty nervous about the shooting at first, because I have no idea how to move and pose in front of the camera. But thanks to the relaxed atmosphere that Oliver created for us, and also thanks to being there with Julie, who already is like a pro in front of the camera, it was easy to get the hang of it after only a couple of minutes.


All in all, it's been a great experience and I'm really happy about the results. 

We've started off with a very sweet setting full of soft colours and lots of light, and then later moved on to a more edgy, darker, sexier look. I really enjoyed both parts, and it was especially fun doing both on one day and feeling the contrast between the styles so clearly.

Again, thanks a lot to Oliver and Julie for this great day! I loved working with you :)


Finally, before I share the photos with you, here's a link to Oliver's homepage if you want to take a look  at more of his work: http://oliverblang.de



And now........ enjoy!

GASHO @ Laforet Harajuku




Last week Friday, my friend Catrin & I visited the GASHO opening party at the Laforet Harajuku. There were a lot of very well dressed people, including the brand's designers and models. If you follow pages like Tokyo Fashion, I think you will recognize quite a few of the people on my photos. And if you're in Tokyo right now, visit the shop and see for yourself, it's pretty unique and interesting!

21st September: Dark Castle (part 2)

Here's finally the second half of my Dark Castle photos. I posted the pictures of the dance and fashion shows earlier this week here: 21st September: Dark Castle (part 1)

This time it's all about the djs and bands that performed. I took a LOT of pictures that night, it was kind of difficult choosing my favourite ones. But here they are, I hope you enjoy them!

Can you tell that I fell in love with Aural Vampire? :P I've been listening to that band for a couple of years now and it was my first time seeing them live - hence I got excited and kind of took a lot of pictures. But in my defense, Exo Chika is gorgeous, isn't she?

But I have to say, I enjoyed every single performance that night. The performers were chosen really well. I had lots of fun!
